This week the hosting provider Netsite has signed their customers .dk domain names with DNSSEC. This means that 5.457 more .dk domain names now are better secured against internet crime.
At DK Hostmaster we are very happy that another hosting provider has taken the step with DNSSEC, because it increases the security for their customer’s domain names. When a domain name is secured with DNSSEC, hackers cannot route traffic to a phishing site and steal personal information, which means that more internet users can feel safe in the .dk-zone.
DNSSEC is a security service developed to prevent internet criminals from modifying the name server process (DNS) and taking control of a domain name.
The total number of DNSSEC signed .dk domain names has now reached 25.000 corresponding to 1,8 % of all Danish domain names. DK Hostmaster is working ongoing to increase the number of DNSSEC .dk domain names.
You can follow the development of DNSSEC-signed .dk domain names on our statistics site.
